PHILADELPHIA TALENT

The LSM Team is proud to announce its newest talent, Emmy Award winner Bob Kelly of FOX 29!

Bob Kelly joined the FOX 29 News team in October 2014 as the Traffic Anchor for “Good Day Philadelphia.”  

 

Prior to joining FOX 29, Bob was the Traffic Anchor for 13 years at CBS 3 in Philadelphia.  He became the first Philadelphia traffic anchor to do his reports in front of the green screen.  Animated and fun to watch with his highly popular phrases like Jammo, Two Jelly Donut Delay, and the Conshy Curve, Bob is now referred to by so many as "The Dean of Traffic." 


Bob was recently inducted into the Philadelphia Broadcasters Hall of Fame!

Through the years, the Emmy Award-winning Traffic Anchor has entertained sports fans on the Jumbotron at the Eagles, Flyers and Sixers games, and with his popular segment “Tailgate Takeover,” before Eagles games.  

Growing up in Northeast Philadelphia where they always decorate for Christmas, he created "A Very Kelly Christmas" hitting the road during the month of December and broadcasting LIVE from the front lawns of the best decorated houses. 

He is out and about all week long connecting with the viewers with his popular segments:

- "Breakfast with Bob" visits a different neighborhood eatery every week showcasing the best menu items and the old school favorites that make each place unique and popular.  

- "Town Takeover" swoops into a different town every week, broadcasting all morning long from 4-10am , showcasing what makes the town tick and invites everyone to join him there LIVE from 4-10am

- St Patrick's Day Parade is a tradition here in Philly and Bob has been co-hosting the City's biggest Irish event for over 15 years & is broadcast here on Fox 29. 

Bob began his career as a radio disc jockey, working with Jerry Blavat, The Geator. He worked up and down the dial at Philly's hottest radio stations, until traffic became news and he joined KYW News Radio with Traffic on the 2's. 

 

A Northeast Philadelphia native, Bob knows all the neighborhoods, the landmarks, and the best place to get a great jelly donut. A graduate of North  Catholic High School and Temple University, he is a local guy through and through.
